The Keno is a custom 232" fantail skipjack launch hand built by Bill Grunwald in Davenport California in 1988 or 1989. It is mahogany and canvas which was hand finished. Powered by an early 90’s produced Lunenburg Foundry Atlantic make and break engine with a Callie transmission. Brass fittings. Tiller steering. On a DHL trailer with extendable/removable hitch. My father had Bill custom build the boat for him and dad finished it himself. The Atlantic engine is an exact replica of the original from the early 1900’s but was newly forged in the early 1990’s. I am uncertain of horsepower but I believe bought this one because it had more power than the original he installed. Engine has minimal hours on it, I doubt 50 total. Callie transmission I believe is forward, neutral and reverse. It has been stored inside it’s whole life and has not been in the water for a number of years. I am uncertain of the operating procedures to get it running and unfortunately my dad passed last year. Beautiful chugger parade boat or possibly convert to steam or electric.
